Mary is placed on administrative leave pending the investigation of the FBI's raid on her house at the conclusion of the previous season. (The FBI unsuccessfully searched Mary's house for the drugs that her sister Brandi was holding for Brandi's boyfriend, Chuck.) While on leave, Mary's cases are given to Marshall, but Mary is allowed to work unofficially -- as Marshall's deputy -- when one of Mary's witnesses, who had been taken into the program 17 years earlier, dies under mysterious circumstances.

Did You Know?
During Mary's breakdown, when she storms out of the office, and across the street, shes walking northeast from the red brick building that supposedly houses the US Marshal's office. The rail yard that she and Marshall end up in, however is several miles southwest of the section of downtown that they started in.
Assuming she continued walking straight, or at least in the same general direction after they crossed the street, they would have ended up far from that rail yard. See more
You're putting Marshall in charge of an investigation into the death of my witness?
Well, um... Yeah. But I was thinking maybe you could help him out. In a strictly unofficial, advisory capacity, of course. Then as soon as you're taken off administrative leave, it's all yours.
So I'll be Marshall's helper? Taking orders from him?
Well, I don't know that I'd characterize it as his helper. I... I would...
Oh, hell yes.

How'd she take it? Mad? Really mad? Fit to be tied ...
